Uncle Tom / Portland Press Herald

One should expect a lot of challenges over the course of a six-month backpacking journey, yes. But on the 3,200-mile long Continental Divide Trail, challenge takes on a whole new meaning.

Just ask Tom Jamrog of Lincolnville, who recently completed this epic five-month hike from Mexico to Canada through four states along the sinuous spine of the Rocky Mountains. With the AT and the PCT already under his hip belt, Jamrog has now joined a rather elite group of hikers who have achieved this Triple Crown feat.

  1. Congratulations “Jamrig” WTG!!
    Hiking for Heart or Heart that hiked the PCT and kept a blog was responsible for me quitting smoking. I’ve continued to read many hikers blogs and they’ve inspired me to live a better life.
    Shout out to hikers “GoneFishing”(PCT) and “Wired” (PCT/CDT) who maintained awesome blogs while hiking.
